She was quoted as saying: "Fierce' isn't the word—why I typed so many let-ters yesterday, that last night I fin-ished my prayers with 'your's truly' ".

Rotary clubs meet every day of the week and conduct activities to improve their communities, aid youth, elevate busi-ness standards, and further interna-tional friendship and understanding." Regarding the 1965-66 program of C.P.H. Teenstra of the Netherlands, president of Rotary International, Gov-ernor Sexsmith said: "Rotary clubs world-wide have been urged by Presi-dent Teenstra to translate plans into action for the global advancement of the program of Rotary."
